Here's the tutorial for the crocheted nosewarmer that I've been promising! I based this pattern off the instructions on knitty, but I thought that it would be faster to crochet it than to knit it, so I converted it into a crocheting pattern. Here's the pattern it's based on: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter02/PATTnosewarmer.html.

This is my first time ever trying to write a crochet pattern, so if anything's unclear, just ask me about it.

1) Ch 15
2) Sc into second ch
3) Work 5 rows (The amount of rows is flexible. It really just matters what shape you want your nosewarmer to be. 5 rows gave me a nice triangular shape.)
4) Fasten off and weave in ends

Then, fold your nose warmer in half. Holding it so that the fold is facing to the left (or right), sc along the top edge. Two sides of the square should now be attached. Turn it right side out.

1) Get a 4" wide piece of cardboard
2) Wrap yarn around about 6 times and cut excess yarn off
3) Carefully slide yarn off cardboard, maintaining the shape
4) Wrap a different piece of yarn tightly around the center, knotting securely. Leave at least a 4" tail on both sides
5) Cut open yarn loops, fluffing yarn out

1) Attached (slip stitch) to one outer corner of the nose warmer, ch enough to go halfway around your head, leaving room for a bow
2) Repeat step 1 on other side

1) With nosewarmer right side out, place tassle on nose point
2) Use a crochet hook to pull through the two longer pieces of yarn from the knot
3) Tie securely and weave in ends

Now you have a brand new nosewarmer. Wear it with pride!

One of these days, I think I'm going to try to make up a pattern for a super long and pointy nosewarmer, like they wore in Winnie the Pooh.

Two questions if you don't mind. 
1.  What size hook did you use?  I used an H, but the sizing seems off.
2.  Do you do a Single Crochet decrease at the beginnign and end of each row, or just skip a stitch at each place?
Thanks!  You are so creative!

I used a size I crochet hook and Red Heart regular size yarn. Maybe the yarn that you're using is thicker than what I used. Also, the pattern may be a bit off, as I did it from memory after making the nosewarmer and giving it away as a gift. At the beginning of each row, I skipped one single crochet, but at the end, I just crocheted all the way... Hope that makes sense! I'll post a picture tomorrow, so maybe that'll clear up any pattern confusion.

That's a fun project!

Thanks for the clarification... I'm going up to try it now!  My two mistakes were the hook size and the fact that instead of skipping a SC, I was doing a decrease... at BOTH ends.  hehe.  Well... practice makes perfect!  I'll let you know how it turns out!
